Blog Hop at Pretty Pink Posh


Pretty Pink Posh is having a Cutting Edge Blog Hop this weekend.  You can create a project that incorporates at least one die and upload it over here.

I made another Christmas card for the hop, this time using a lot of Distress Inks and some Phrase Bubble Dies from Hero Arts.

Speech Bubble PPP Cutting Edge Hop

I created an ombre background using Distress Inks in blues and purples and sprayed the piece with Perfect Pearls for a little shimmer.

I gathered up an assortment of holiday sentiments from Hero Arts and stamped them onto a bunch of die cut Phrase Bubbles.  I added some tiny snowflake images onto the die cuts and added little dots of Stickles to the centre of each snowflake.

I think this is a fun nontraditional holiday card and will likely create some more Distress backgrounds in other colours to make additional cards.

I'm also entering this card at A Blog Named Hero for the Ombre Challenge.



Thanks for stopping by and wishing you an inky weekend!
